We know things come up last minute at times but if you know that your child needs to leave early, please follow the early leave procedure:

  • Send a handwritten note with your student in the morning.
  • The student will come to the office between 7-7:30 and turn in the note and then receive a pass to leave class at the designated time.
  • Student will leave class using the pass and come to office and sign out. They can then either drive to their appointment or meet parent at the car to leave for the appointment.

Please try to refrain from sending emails or calling as we need the early leave in writing and sometimes are not able to access email in time to get the early leave note to the student before 7:30. Your cooperation is appreciated.

On March 27, 2019, Badin High School will host its 28th Annual Grandparents’ Day. Grandparents of Sophomore and Senior students are invited to school for 8:45 am Mass in the Pfirman Family Activity Center, a coffee cake breakfast for the grandparents and their Badin grandchildren (sophomore and seniors only), and a visit to their classrooms.

We will send a personal invitation to our grandparent guests so we need you to complete the information below by February 22nd. *If one person would take care of listing the entire family (Badin cousins – sophomore and seniors only) on the form, that will help insure our seating the entire family groups together. Failure to return the information to us in a timely fashion could result in your student(s) not being included in this special day.

The invitation sent to grandparents will have a return reservation card that the Grandparents must return by March 8th. Please communicate with the grandparents and make sure they send their card to Badin.
